An exclusive material gives the Richard Mille RM 11-05 Flyback Chronograph a dimension that other watches simply can’t reach. Grey Cermet is used to construct a case that takes the best of both worlds between titanium and ceramics for a lightweight material that’s as hard as a rock. That 30mm by 38mm Cermet case keeps the alluring aesthetic of a skeletonized dial that boldly displays the calibre RMAC3 automatic winding movement at the core of this watch free from scratches, dents, and other damage.
This Richard Mille creation is unique in that it relies on a pusher placed perfectly to allow its flyback chronograph to be reset without having to stop the mechanism that keeps the watch running over its 55-hour power reserve. Like the open cashback, the skeletonized dial makes it easy to admire this feat of horological engineering. The template of the dial also does well to integrate the three chronograph-powered counters that it features. A powder blue bracelet caps off the RM 11-05 by balancing the color accenting the dark grey of the Cermet case.
